Bengals Bring Back Eifert.

While NFL teams may still be in disbelief after the surprise trade of superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns, new signings continue to draw headlines in recent days.

Among the latest is tight end Tyler Eifert and the Cincinnati Bengals agreeing to terms on a one-year deal. The 28-year-old has been a key figure in the offense but has also labored through injuries.

The contract is expected to be incentive-laden. His 2018 contract was worth as much as $8.5 million, including a $1 million bonus if he played every game.

According to the NFL Network's insider Ian Rapoport, free-agent cornerback Darqueze Dennard, who was drafted by the Bengals in the first round in 2014, will visit the Kansas City Chiefs this week.

Another notable cornerback is staying with the Philadelphia Eagles, as Ronald Darby on Friday agreed to a one-year deal worth $8.5 million. Darby, 25, suffered a torn ACL in November. He had visited the Chiefs before inking a deal with the 2018 Super Bowl champions. 

Also on Friday, the San Francisco 49ers agreed to a three-year contract with 26-year-old running back Raheem Mostert, according to his agent. Rapoport reports that the deal has an overall value of $8.7 million with $3 million guaranteed.

A source told NFL insider Michael Silver that the Los Angeles Rams will meet Monday with quarterback Blake Bortles. The Rams, coming off a trip to the Super Bowl, are not in a desperate need for a backup to Jared Goff but the former Jacksonville Jaguars starter would be considered an upgrade over Sean Mannion.

One player who isn't going anywhere is Stefon Diggs. The Minnesota Vikings wideout was gaining traction on social media after his brother posted a picture of him in a Washington Redskins uniform but a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter "F--- no" in response to rumors Diggs is headed to Washington.
